Newman Named To Sporting News All-Decade Team



    The Sporting News has announced their All-Decade college football team, with Dallas' Terence Newman, a product of Kansas State, making the first-team cut, the only Cowboy to do so.

    Newman, of course, was drafted in the first round (fifth overall) by Dallas in 2002, a year for which Newman was rewarded with the Jim Thorpe Award, as the nation's top defensive back, All-American and Big XII Defensive Player of the Year honors. He is also enshrined in the Wildcats' ring of honor in Manhattan.

    Former Oklahoma Sooner, former Cowboy and current liability in coverage, Roy Williams joins his former teammate on the list as the only Cowboys, former or current, to have made the cut.

    The pair were also named to the CBS Sports All-Decade CFB Team this Summer.

    Native-Texan Adrian Peterson made the team as first string running back, along with Felix Jones' former running-mate at Arkansas Darren McFadden.

    Tim Tebow was named the college football player of the decade, and his coach, Urban Meyer, was named the coach of the decade.
